Today, I decided to cobble together some of my favorite stories from around the web.
- More Kick Ass? Universal Studios is in talks to make Kick-Ass 2.
- File this under I had no idea (originally published on May 1st): Mark Ruffalo has a 6-Picture Marvel Deal.
- A great cover story from THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER featuring Marion Cotillard (part of THR’s Cannes issue).

- On the VARIETY website, news has come that Stephen Frears will direct a forthcoming Freddie Mercury biopic, starring Sasha Baron Cohen.
- Late last week, it was reported that NY-based Cablevision Systems Corporation is seeking to sell the Clearview Cinemas chain, which includes the historic Ziegfeld Theater, one of the last great old-school movie theaters in the United States.
- Real or Fake? Over the past day or so, there seemed to be a little confusion about the possible leak of the poster for Judd Apatow’s THIS IS 40.
- “Clip Joint” from the GUARDIAN newspaper – a look at arguments as portrayed on the silver screen (shown: still from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor).
That’s me done. Are there any movie-related stories that have piqued your interest?
